  SERVICE CANCELLATION NOTICE

As Ontario works to fight the spread of COVID19 we are cancelling divine service until further notice. This includes all functions and Sunday services. 

 

Don’t forget to check on those who are living alone.   

 

Take a break from the TV and computers and meditate on God’s Word and pray.  In the midst of these extraordinary times, God’s peace rests fully and firmly on Christ Jesus, the One who began and will perfect our faith.

 

Blessings

 

      Weekly Sermons

Pastor has started to record his sermons without congregation in Church starting Sunday March 22 and will post on our website. 

 

You can find them by pressing the sermon audio button on this page or the sermon text button if you would like to read them.

 

God's blessings to you all.

 

           Online Donations

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we find ourselves in a situation where we, as God’s people, cannot gather in our normal places of worship to receive God’s gifts. We are all faced with the challenge of how to continue giving our regular tithes and offerings to support the local ongoing Word and Sacrament ministry of our congregation, especially if we are not allowed to leave our homes. In order to continue our regular giving to our congregation there are two options available online.

1. Credit card donation

Lutheran Church Canada has provided an online option using your credit card to donate and automatic tax receipt is generated. Press the green donate online button below.  

 

2. e-Transfer

From your bank account you can send to email address:  gracelutheranoshawa.treasurer@gmail.com

 

What is a Lutheran?

 

Lutherans are those Christians who choose to accept Martin Luther's teachings.  On October 31, 1517, Luther, a Catholic monk, posted his 95 Theses as a challenge to the doctrine and practices of the Roman Catholic Church, hoping to reform the practices he felt were inconsistent with scripture.

What is the Lutheran faith?

 

The Lutheran faith is the Christian faith of Western Christendom as reformed by Martin Luther and others in the Book of Concord (1580).  On October 31, 1517, Luther, an Augustinian monk, posted his 95 Theses that challenged the errors of the Roman Catholic Church. He hoped to reform church practices according to the bible alone.

The Liturgy

 

At Grace we always follow the historical and traditional Lutheran liturgy of the western church as it is found in our hymnal, the Lutheran Service Book. This page provides an explanation of the part of the liturgy and the references to the Holy Scriptures from which the liturgy is drawn.

Welcome to EDLYA!

This is the homepage of the East District Lutheran Young Adults, or EDLYA for short!

Our goal is to foster fellowship and growth amidst the young adults (any member aged 18-35!) of the East District of Lutheran Church Canada. If you too are a young adult, then you are invited to join us! We hope to see you at one of our upcoming events.
